NAME

exp2, exp2f, exp2l − base-2 exponential function

SYNOPSIS

#include <math.h>

double exp2(double x);
float exp2f(float
x);
long double exp2l(long double
x);

Link with −lm.

Feature Test Macro Requirements for glibc (see feature_test_macros(7)):

exp2(), exp2f(), exp2l():

_XOPEN_SOURCE >= 600 || _ISOC99_SOURCE || _POSIX_C_SOURCE >= 200112L;
or cc -std=c99

DESCRIPTION

The exp2() function returns the value of 2 raised to the power of x.

RETURN VALUE

On success, these functions return the base-2 exponential value of x.

For various special cases, including the handling of infinity and NaN, as well as overflows and underflows, see exp(3).

ERRORS

See math_error(7) for information on how to determine whether an error has occurred when calling these functions.

For a discussion of the errors that can occur for these functions, see exp(3).

VERSIONS

These functions first appeared in glibc in version 2.1.

ATTRIBUTES

For an explanation of the terms used in this section, see attributes(7).
